The easiest way to survive an IRS audit is to get ready in advance

Posted by Admin Posted on Oct 06 2020

IRS audit rates are historically low, according to the latest data, but that’s little consolation if your return is selected. But with proper preparation and planning, you should fare well. But it helps to know what might catch the attention of the IRS. For example, some audit “red flags” are unusually high deductions, major inconsistencies between previous years’ tax returns and the current one, profit margins and expenses markedly different from those of similar businesses. The IRS normally has three years within which to conduct an audit. If the IRS selects you for an audit, we can help you understand the issues, gather the needed documents and respond to the inquiries effectively.
